san francisco payphone lyrics – catch 22

one year ago today
i tossed away
a quarter that i should have saved
i faked a farewell fantasy and misbehaved
i never made an effort
my conscience went
after all the time a spent
dollars that i dropped on you
thought you’d say you missed me too

so here i am, a friend, in the end i meant
to disregarded that birthday card
nailed upon your wall he sent
i meant to turn my eyes from everything i shouldn’t see
an oath i took, you kissed my cheek.
cried yourself to sleep, but never would you admit to me.

i always laughed when you laughed
cried when you cried
danced when you danced
i lied
laugh when you laugh
cry when you cry
dance when you dance
i lied

san francisco pay-phone. so far from home.
so many friends, and i’m alone.
i faked a farewell fantasy. i lied. you bother me.
my conscience gone. this conversation’s dragging on.
there was once upon a time when you… would miss me too.

so here i am, a friend, the end,
i meant to disregard that birthday card,
nailed upon your wall he sent.
i meant to turn my eyes from everything.
never made a promise.
an oath i took, i kissed your cheek.
cried myself to sleep, i won’t admit that you see.

i always laughed when you laughed
cried when you cried
danced when you danced
i lied
laugh when you laugh
cry when you cry
dance when you dance
i lied
i lied
i lied
i lied
i lied
